Something old...

Good morning! Seems like ages since I had a card to share, but here I am with my DT card for this weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The challenge this week is to use very old stash....the older the better! We all have plenty of that lurking about so a great opportunity to use some of it!
Most of the things I've used on this card are old...the stamp is a wood backed one, I've had it for years but I still think it's lovely! I've coloured the image with copics and fussy cut.
The papers are old...I think they're MME , again I've had them for years, used them loads when I first bought them and kind of hoarded the rest. The doily is old. I bought a large pack years ago...hardly ever use them! The ribbon is old too. The teacup die cuts are new...magazine is the sentiment, they just seemed perfect with the stamp!
I feel quite virtuous using up all that hoarded stash :))
We'd love for you to play along this week...come on you know you want too could be walking around with a virtuous glow! For more inspiration from my lovely teamies, and to add your own fabulous creation just click here to be transported to the Challenge Blog.
Hope the sun is shining where you are, have a great weekend!

Hi Chris,
this card is wonderful and I love how you have tied all the elements together.
Your stamped image is wonderful and as usual coloured prefectly.
I love the sheen on her plaits.
Super designing as always.

Really great image and wonderfully coloured, some great oldies but goodies used here and how nice that you have had the chance to use them. I have just thrown some doilies that I have had for years, was sick of seeing them, as I never managed to make a card to make them look good, you have.
Hope you have a great week.

What a brilliant card Chris and using older stash too! Love those new teacups though I have to admit! Hehe. We always have an eye for the new and exciting don't we?! But I really DO need to use some of my older stash. Craft hoarder extraordinaire here!! LOL. I think it's brilliant you used so many older items on your fabby card. Nailed it this week! Hugs, Wends xoxo
